I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I'm guessing that there will never be any love lost between Tamra Barney and Alexis Bellino from Real Housewives of Orange County. In the wake of the news that Tamra has snubbed another season of the Bravo hit to focus on her family (um, prioritize much, Alexis?), Tamra's acrylic French tip claws have come out in full force!
As we've reported, Alexis is sticking to her claims that Bravo is desperate for her to return for season 8, but she just can't continue to put herself in a situation where people question her fake engagement ring, rental home, outrageous news anchor claims, and her husband's chimplant. Er, I mean, she just doesn't want to be bullied anymore. I can't say I blame her there…Alexis certainly get the brunt of hatefulness from her cast mates for purportedly being phony. Fake or not though, no one deserves to be subjected to other's petty bad behavior.

Of course, Tamra, aka Alexis' public enemy number one, isn't buying that Alexis was begged by the network to stick around. She recently tweeted, "[L]et’s just say the story I read and what I was told does not match,” followed by, “[I]n my opinion her story is never straight!"
Radar Online reports that Alexis
was forbidden by her husband is exhausted due to all of the catty drama and cocktail-induced mean girl situations. A source close to the show tells the site, "She wants to have a normal life with her family, and that doesn't include all the drama that comes with being on the show."
The same insider continues, "Alexis knows that her children are the most important thing in her life, not being famous or being on television, so she made the decision to not be on the show and to return to her regular life."
Tamra, not surprisingly, won't back down and continues to believe that Alexis got the ax for the upcoming season. She maintains in the Twitterverse, "[N]ot the same story I was told …let's keep it at that," while planting a seed of doubt in her followers by asking, "[W]ho leaves a successful show?"
